But I really really want THIS one

I've been looking for the Fujifilm x100s camera for over a month and it's just not out there. I'm traveling at the beginning of September and really want to get this camera before then. Is there any possibility of that or am I being silly? Does anyone know any good places to look? Does anyone know when the shortage will be over? I'm in the Chicagoland, USA area if that helps. Thanks.

Recommnedations needed for binoculars with built-in digital camera

I'm considering buying a set of binoculars with built in Digital Camera. The Meade Capture View 1.3 has the features I think I want: Price < c$200; sd card expansion; 8-10 power; cheap & readily available batteries; at 1.3mp, better than vga resolution. i'm also considering the 2mp version. Pentax, Bushnell and Celestron are some other makers.

Anyone who has used these have any thoughts on "must have" or "avoid at all costs" features or manufactures? General recommendation?
